Interim Commissioner Rosa and Vice Chancellor Brown Statement on Passing of PTA President Lorey Zaman

“Lorey Zaman’s loss is felt deeply by those within the State Education Department who worked side-by-side with her for New York’s children. She was a passionate crusader, faithfully representing parents in the fight for an equitable, high-quality education for each and every student across the state. Through her kindness, compassion and dedication, Lorey left an indelible mark on so many; it’s a legacy that will live on. This is an unimaginable tragedy for her family, especially her four children, to whom we send our thoughts and strength.”
